The Animal Ethics Reader is the first comprehensive, state-of-the-art anthology of readings on this substantial area of study and interest. A subject that regularly captures the headlines, the book is designed to appeal to anyone interested in tracing the history of the subject, as well as providing a powerful insight into the debate as it has developed. The recent wealth of material published in this area has not, until now, been collected in one volume. Readings are arranged thematically, carefully presenting a balanced representation of the subject as it stands. It will be essential reading for students taking a course in the subject as well as being of considerable interest to the general reader.
Articles are arranged under the following headings:
Theories of Animal Ethics
Animals for Food
Genetic Engineering of Animals
Ethics and Wildlife
Zoos, Aquaria, and Animals in Entertainment
Legal Rights for Animals
Readings from leading experts in the field including Peter Singer, Mary Midgely and Bernard Rollin are featured as well as selections from Donald Griffin, Mark Bekoff, Jane Goodall, Raymond Frey, Barbara Orlans, Tom Regan, and Baird Callicott. There is an emphasis on balancing classic and contemporary readings with a view to presenting debates as they stand at this point in time.
Each chapter is introduced by the editors and study questions feature at the end. The foreword has been written by Bernard Rollin.
This will be appropriate reading for students taking courses in philosophy, ethics, zoology, animal science, psychology, veterinary medicine, law, environmental science and religion.

Susan Armstrong is Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies at Humboldt State University and has published widely on this and affiliated subjects.
Richard Botzler is Professor of Wildlife, also at Humboldt State University and a leading published expert in the field.
Together they have edited Environmental Ethics (1998).
A comprehensive, up-to-date anthology going beyond the usual animal rights issues should be of great use, not just to teachers, but to the growing non-professionals interested in these matters.
–Niall Shanks, Tennessee State University
I like the basic structure of the anthology. I teach a course called 'Animals: Morals, Minds and Nature' and would strongly consider adopting the book.
–Dale Jamieson, Princeton University
The anthology is both comprehensive in its coverage of the issues raised by animal ethics and its inclusion of diverse writers on these issues.
–Nick Buttle, University of the West of England
